I want to thank all my "Peeps" for the get well wishes, concern and kindness! I am feeling better. For the last 2-3 months I have been struggling with the "BLUES...DEPRESSION".
It has been a daily struggle telling myself to "snap out of it and go on"!!!
Over a year ago my Dad passed away after a long time of declining health. The last 2 years took a toll on me in helping take care of him. After his passing, I didn't really grieved, but felt relieved knowing that he no longer was in pain. As a year was getting closer to his death anniversary, I began to grieve his death. I have never felt this way before... I miss him...
And like everyone else in this world, along with feeling this way, which exacerbated my depression, I have been dealing with work (lay offs, long hours, extra work) & stress, family, ...daily life!
Well it's no longer a huge struggle to roll out of bed every morning and face the world! I am feeling better!

  3. i'm sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling so well. i do understand what you are going through though, and know that you can't simply just "snap out of it." it's good you have recognized what the cause of it is, and remember always to take care of yourself, as hard as that is to do. make a list of "feel good" things, and take it slowly. don't be too hard on yourself, feel your feelings, and remember "this too shall pass". and i am always available by email :) hugs.
